Baron’s Cove Plans Culinary Escape

Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor has planned a weekend of culinary indulgence, beginning October 16. The weekend begins with a welcome dinner on the first night. The next day, Chef Nick Vogel and team will cook up breakfast and lunch in the restaurant, all-the-while preparing for the main event that evening: a Chef’s Table dinner, featuring a multi-course menu using ingredients from the restaurant’s farm and artisan partnerships across the East End. These dinners are designed to be engaging and interactive, giving Chef Vogel a platform to describe his menu and discuss the farm-to-fork ethos of his kitchen. The weekend break will culminate with a breakfast before checkout.

“What goes on our menu is dependent upon the quality of the products and the season, and we stay true to that all year,” Chef Vogel said in a release issued last week. “I’m really looking forward to the Chef’s Table. I was always cooking with my grandmother and my mother, and I have it instilled in me to always ask people if they’re hungry and to take care of them.”

In between these curated feasts, guests may take the time to explore the village streets of Sag Harbor.
